So I’m having some issues with setting up Newsletter to send emails. I’ve entered the SMTP account information from my Mandrill account into the Newsletter plugin settings. My domain is verified, DKIM valid and SPF valid on Mandrill. However, when I send e-mails with the plugin, nothing shows up on my Mandrill account. On the plugin page, it shows as sent, but in Mandrill, no emails have been sent, or even attempted to be sent. Could I be missing some settings? The Domain is hosted on a Bluehost server (not sure if this matters).
I think the issue is that bluehost is not opening ports required by Mandrill to send with SMTP. If I cannot get them to open the ports, is there another way to do this? Like a mandrill API or something?
